Adam Cornett and Maria Ines Bogado

Adam Cornett began his obsession with dance in 2000, when he found tango. The organic movement and improvisational nature of tango appealed to his desire for exploration. The desire to continually experiment and share his own discoveries led Adam to begin traveling and teaching throughout the US. He has a deep and varied background in kinesthetics and movement that he applies to his dancing, ranging from study in the martial arts, to formal education in the fields of medicine and massage therapy. His teaching style is grounded and tactile, as he experiences tango as a physical, reactionary dance. His aim is to make the dance feel good, as well as look good. He encourages his students to be creative, inventive, playful, and musical, as these are the qualities he cherishes most about tango. Adam lives in Providence RI where he is the full time owner and resident teacher of the famous Providence Tango studio and school.

María Inés Bogado started dancing when she was 12 years old. She grew up with folklore and received her degree in Folklore Argentino at the Centro Polivalente de Arte de Ezeiza.
